Toddler Program

Pre-School thru Lower Elementary

  • CHM provides before and after daycare.

  • Full time schedule includes anything from 7:00 Am until 6:00 Pm.

  • Our Preschool program is designed for children ages three through four.  We consider it a fun, educational environment.  Children are encouraged to engage, explore and enjoy.

  • The Kindergarten and Lower Elementary programs offers children the opportunity for group and individualized learning, focusing on math, language, creative writing, science, geography and culture. Our programs don't meet, they exceed the state standards.

 

Because one can never be quite sure how the day’s events will progress, all times are approximate.
